Hi i'm Allie, mom of three and director of strategic partnerships, brand marketing and product development at Berkley Green. I joined the company part time after leaving the legal profession when my first child was born 6 years ago. My mom had warned me that motherhood was challenging but honestly, I don't think anything could have prepared me for it, certainly not law school! All of the sudden you have this huge responsibility and you want to do everything right for your child, only feed them the healthiest food and give them the safest and healthiest environment to grow up in. The reality is, especially for me living in New York City, there was never going to be such a thing as perfect! I was going to give my kids non-organic food sometimes and not every toy they put in their mouth would be wooden or natural rubber. But the one thing I knew I could control, thanks to my mom, was my cleaning products and that honestly made me feel better. I knew I was doing at least one thing right--it felt like one less thing to worry about. So all of the sudden, I felt more invested in this mission to bring a healthier safer home to the masses, further develop the product line to include a wider range of more targeted household cleaners (my kids were licking the floors--"mom, we need a floor cleaner" my kids were licking the windows "mom we need a glass cleaner"). I also felt like there needed to be a dedicated suite of baby products, all fragrance free and developed with baby stains in mind-and so Berkley Green Baby was born. Two more kids later i'm more committed than ever to the mission of giving every mom one less thing to worry out.
